In collaboration with the Carson City Culture and Tourism Authority and the Carson City Redevelopment Authority, the Carson City Cultural Commission is accepting applications for the Redevelopment Special Event Grants. These grants are intended to support professional arts and culture events such as community festivals, special performances, exhibitions, concerts within the fields of Theater, Music, and Visual Art held within Carson City’s established Redevelopment Districts.
Grants up to $10,000 are available at the discretion of the Carson City Cultural Commission.
- Up to $5,000 for recurring arts and culture events (this includes recurring events of a similar nature such as different theatrical productions by the same theater company each year)
- Up to $10,000 for new/emerging arts and culture events that have the potential to become an annual/recurring event
All grants require a 50% cash match.
Applications must be submitted using the fillable PDF Grant Application Form that can be found at carson.org/eventgrant and submitted via e-mail to CTAArtsandCulture@visitcarsoncity.com by September 30, 2021.
Please note that the grant process was delayed this year due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Grant funds awarded under this year’s program can only be used for events that will take place from November 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022, subject to Carson City Board of Supervisors’ approval (anticipated to be October 21, 2021).
